LilyAC vs daunt vs
dcae (60) vs (40) boulicrok - use better teams dcae
KSG (50) vs (50) Laroxyl - i still have faith in ksg he could easily be 2-1 rn
Toadow (55) vs (45) Wail Wailord - toadows last 2 teams have been pretty good so i favour him but im predicting wail bc go wail
Luthier (55) vs (45) kythier - not too sure about this bc luthier might be washed, but at least i know hes playing a ton of practice games to shake off the rust. kythr hasnt been great

Interesting Trends from Week 4:
  1. More Team Diversity: This week, we saw more offensive archetype being brought, like dcae's Psychic-spam and Laroxyl's sun team.
  2. God Natu chan: Everyone's new favorite bird made 5 appearances this week and won in 4 of them. It takes advantage of Pawniard's lackluster usage and the rise of FerroKoff cores to wreak havoc.
  3. Fall of Grookey and Mudbray: Two Pokemon that were expected to dominate the metagame only made 2 total appearances combined this week.
  4. Variance???: Team compositions are more varied compared to the earlier weeks, showcasing that the meta might have stabilized a bit (even if Speed tie central is still prevalent).
Scores for LC Prediction Tour (Updated for Week 4):

Might as well put my own predictions:
LilyAC vs Toadow - Toadow brought Water resist Porygon into LO Staryu and nearly won so this might be closer than expected, but I think Lily is one of the few people that can exploit this style of building.
Luthier vs KSG - KSG has looked tilted the past two weeks, and I dont expect this to stop. Luthier had a pretty good showing with a pretty solid win over kythr and a solid team.
kythr vs dcae - I liked dcae's build and hope to see more of these unorthodox and slightly fishy builds.
Wail Wailord vs daunt vs - He's bringing my build so he can't lose
Laroxyl vs Boulicrok - I respect bringing the sun team so he gets the bold. I do think Bouli letting Mienfoo take a para against dcae's team with Fight resist Pony-G was a bit sloppy by his standards.
